The 50 Most Influential Christians in America

[a lost entry reconstructed]

The 50 Most Influential Christians in America according to Church Report Magazine. Notably and disappointedly absent are Tim Keller and Hugh Hewitt. Those editors readers are just a tad off the mark. A surprise one that I did not know of his faith orientation is Dr. Phil McGraw (and just makin’ the cut).

I don’t know what to make of it with all the fascination with influential people; Barna recently published his survey results about major influencers of American Protestant churches. Will had a great insight on the problem with statistics (and he made me say uncle, cf. comment thread there).

[update: The rankings of this Top 50 list are based on a tally of the magazine’s readers polled, not its editors; See discussion at their message board here and here.]
